Marriage Green Card to Jordanian Husband
Client’s Nationality: Jordan
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
Case Type: I-485 Adjustment of Status Based on Marriage to U.S. Citizen (Marriage Green Card)
BACKGROUND: Our client retained us to secure immigration status for her husband, who was in removal proceeding at the time.
Date of Application: April 25, 2011
Date of Court Order: January 29, 2013
Date of Approval: February 12, 2013
WE STOOD WITH OUR CLIENTS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. We helped our clients observe due court appearances. In fact, we appeared at four hearings—due to frequent job changes during hard economic times. We also helped our clients prove that their marriage was real and in good faith. That is, the marriage presented to officials was, as in fact was, the result of love and trust.
CHALLENGE: Marriage immigration may also require showing adequate income to support the family. Therefore, proving marriage to be real and the result of love and trust is a fundamental step, but incomplete. Sometimes, it takes patient planning to walk through many hearings, until a job gainfully enough was on file.
Approval of marriage green card, therefore, depends on careful documentation and good planning, which often includes adequate income.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE GRANT OF GREEN CARD, our client’s husband received marriage green card.
